Montrose Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Polly Boeck as the Senior Netball Coach for the 2017 Season. The Board, Senior & Junior Committees congratulate Polly on her appointment and we look forward to the continued growth and success of our Netballers.
Polly started playing Netball at 7 Years old and from that time has always been involved in Netball. She has a strong passion for the game of Netball and for its place within the Club.
Polly ‘s background in Netball at Junior & Senior level is excellent as her performances in the Colac & Districts Netball Association and the Mountain District Netball Association are testimony to. Polly has also undergone training in successfully completing the Netball Victoria Foundation Coaching Course and the Certificate III in Future Leaders Program.

AN INITIATIVE OF THE MONTROSE & BLACKBURN FOOTBALL CLUBS
Every game that Montrose & Blackburn Football Clubs compete in now has more at stake than the 4 Premiership points - they are matches that act as a timely remineder for Members of both Clubs and their communities about looking after each other whether at the footy or when we socialise.
In 2014, when the Clubs hosted an AFL International Cup Match at Montrose (between the USA Revolution and the New Zealand teams) and it was decided to dedicate future matches between our Clubs to the "STEP BACK - THINK" campaign to further raise awareness on how to avoid being involved in the often vicious and unwarranted attacks on people that have occurred in recent years at public entertainment venues. There have been numerous deaths and permanent disabilities caused to young males over recent years that have also have the added trauma to the families and friends of both the victims and the perpertrators.
The matches between Montrose and Blackburn are now fought out for the "Step Back - Think Cup" that has been won by Montrose on the first 2 occasions and is currently held by Blackburn after their win in late 2015. No doubt we are looking forward to the rematch this year and we will be putting in our best effort to win the "CUP" back for Montrose Football Club.
Keep your eye open for the 2016 draw as these are great matches to watch as both Clubs vie for the "Cup".
